On social media, it seems like our celebrity idols have it all, not having a single problem at all. But that’s far from reality, just like most of us humans, they too are going through a lot in life, they just don’t show it online.
And one of them is young, beautiful, and talented actress Kyline Alcantara. During the recent press conference where she was launched as the newest ambassador for makeup brand Ever Bilena, Kyline, tells MB Life, that she too, once went through a dark moment in her life, to the point that she became suicidal.
“Disclaimer: It’s easier said than done,” she says. “Honestly, I was once suicidal. This is because at a very young age, I already have a lot of responsibilities, a lot of baggage.”
The 19-year-old Kyline then admits that she’s the breadwinner of their family.
“I tried, I tried to commit suicide before,” she heavily admits. “I am very happy that I have a lot of friends who guided me during that phase of my life.”
She then shares the three things that helped her to overcome those dark thoughts.
- Show your real self to your parents
“Don’t be afraid to show show your real self to your parents,” she says. “Kasi kaya naman ako naging ganun kasi feeling ko hindi ako naiintindihan ng mga magulang ko. Na hindi nila naiintindihan kung sino talaga ako as a person.”
- Always pray
“I’ve encountered heavy situation in my life recently and it really shattered me to pieces,” she reveals. “Hindi ko pwedeng ilabas sa social media. Always pray kasi nandyan naman lagi si God para suportahan ka at para ipakita sa’yo kung gaano ka Niya kamahal.”
- Adapt to changes
“It really depends on you if magiging better ka or magiging victim mode ka every single time na magkakaroon ka ng problema,” Kyline says.
As she successfully fought her dark thoughts, Kyline is continuously reaping the fruits of her labors. On top of naming as the newest ambassador for Ever Bilena, she’s also part of GMA’s newest show “I left my heart in Sorsogon” together with Heart Evangelista.
Way to go, Kyline!
